Venus Retrograde Enters Pisces
Venus Retrograde enters Pisces at 5:25 PM PT this afternoon. Venus in Pisces is impressionable, seducible, carefree, and shows a love of music and art. Venus Retrograde in Pisces gives us a brief break from Venus Retrograde in Aries, where Venus is in its detriment and does not function very well. Venus goes direct on April 15th and reenters Aries on April 28th. We have more retrograde activity this week as Mercury enters its Retrograde Shadow on Tuesday. Mercury goes Retrograde next Sunday at 4:14 PM. Then Saturn turns Retrograde on Wednesday at 10:05 PM. The retrograde of the outer planets are not as dramatic as Mercury, Venus, and Mars, but they are a good time to review and complete unfinished business. We also have a marvelous Mars/Pluto trine on Wednesday at 9:01 PM. Mars/Pluto gives great self-confidence and power. On Friday the Sun opposes Jupiter at 2:39 PM. Sun/Jupiter is lucky but it can promote arrogance and excess. Saturday brings two difficult aspects: a Venus/Saturn square at 1:28 PM, and a Sun/Pluto square at 5:49 PM. Venus/Saturn brings jealousy and separation in love. Sun/Pluto brings power struggles, physical suffering, and danger. Wow, a very busy week full of contradictory energies.
The first Void was this morning. Sorry I am too late for this one. The next is on Thursday in Leo from 5:16 PM until 9:20 PM when the Moon enters Virgo. Void Moon in Leo is good for creative activity. Or, if you would like to indulge in a little fiction, you could try one of my unusual novels: The Man-Eater, or Uncurtained Window, both available from Amazon. Next Sunday we have another Void Moon in Virgo from 1:21 AM until 5:34 AM. This should not be a problem on the West Coast.
